Iran had their Presidential election June 12, 2009.
As news of the election results worked its way across Iran, so too did protests of what many thought were patently unfair and crooked elections there.
These protest turned into mass protests in the streets of Iran. Neda a young college art student modestly dressed was with her teacher watching the demonstration when she was shot. Be warned the video is graphic. She died on the spot.
This was caught on a camera and put out on you tube for the world to see. Millions around the world saw this young girl die after being murdered.
Obama had this to say about Neda.
What kind of excuse is there for that gobblygook coming from the leader of the free world?
In Iran however the public wasn’t taking it sitting down. They weren’t blue and depressed; they were green and bubbling over with anger. They were going underground and getting organized.
Tyranny always and everywhere will be fought against by those who are oppressed by whatever they have on hand.
We did it during our revolution, outnumbered and out gunned at Valley Forge, the youth in China’s Tiananmen Square did it and there were deaths then too.
People when backed into a corner become willing to lose all in violent protest – when that is all they have left.
This next video explains some of the action that has been building up since the elections and mentions some of the demonstrations around the first of Dec. 09, that had already taken place and further portends the upcoming demonstrations on the 27th of Dec. The video is from PJTV. It is good and informative of the background.
Well the demonstrations on the 27th did take place and the Iranian government did crack down. What little we heard on the MSM was useless but thank God for the Internet and videos. The news is coming out. The Iranian Citizens are making sure, the foreign media is banned from filing stories. The state media is well "state" run.
And more from the 27th protests.
Of course the Iranian government thugs claim innocence.
Now finally standing firm for freedom everywhere the most recent response from the Leader of the Free World is linked below.
If you were fighting for your freedom and your life in the streets of Iran how much Hope and Change would you feel after hearing that rousing bit of doggerel.???
Thank God for the Internet; now it has become Not just Theirs, but Our Freedom Too.
